Google upgrades undersea optic cable to give 26 Tbps Speed for Asians

Google has been setting new benchmarks in technology and gadgets. Earlier today Yan Tang, Network Resource  APAC Regional Lead of Google has posted in the official Google Asia blog that the fiber optic online speed is upgraded with the installation of new Faster Cable system. By this now Google has access to up to 10Tbps (125,000 MB speed ).

Earlier in June Google has announced about this faster cable system between US & japan and quotes it as the highest capacity undersea cable.

This cable further links from Japan to Taiwan. Changhua County in Taiwan has one of the largest databases of Google and from Taiwan, all the people from Asia will access it. So, through this update, now Asian people will see the speed improvement in Google products/ services.

26 Tbps means ?

So what do 26 Tbps means, it’s actually 125,000 MBPS. But this conversion from Tbps into MBPS is maths. Here’s what Google has mentioned about 26 Tbps speed means ?

26 Tbps Speed to Asia

So in the terms of Selfie addicts, with this 26 terabits per second ” Now you can send a selfie from your smartphone from Taiwan to another smartphone in Japan within a span of 15 seconds “. Going with the maths of 86,400 seconds in a day and a rough estimation of usage that will be almost 138  Billion selfies being transferred in a day.

In Asia, there are only two data centers of Google, one being in Changhua County, Taiwan and other is in Singapore. So with this optic cable from the US to Japan to Taiwan, we can expect much more speed in Asian countries. This has already started and you can experience right now.

In some areas, you may not notice right now but it will take some days to upgrade the speed to all over Asia. Asia is one of the largest growing users to have access to online, so the amount of infrastructure invested is quite large and also these cables are lined in non-Tsunami affected regions. So that there will be no problem in the network during the natural disaster.
